Patient Claims Dr. Adams Sponged Off Her

11/13/2007 6:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Another patient of Dr. Jan Adams sued him for malpractice, alleging he left a foreign object in her body.

In a lawsuit filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Lori Ufondu claims that in 1996, she underwent breast augmentation by Dr. Adams. In 2003, she underwent revision surgery by another doctor, who discovered that a surgical sponge was left, she claims by Dr. Adams.

Ufondu claims the sponge and its belated removal caused a distortion in her appearance, creating a deformed right nipple, a puncture wound, loss of sensation and "horrific scar tissue."

Following Dr. Adams' surgery, Ufondu claims she was feeling "sharp, needle-like pain in the area of this scar tissue." She says she complained to Dr. Adams, who allegedly responded "by laughing in a derisory fashion, claiming that the pain would subside."

Ufondu obtained a judgment in excess of $100,000. Her lawyer tells TMZ the doctor has not paid, and he's trying to enforce the judgment. Her lawyer adds that there are several outstanding judgments against Dr. Adams, who has ignored his obligation to pay.

Isn't interesting that so much never surfaced about this man prior to the untimely demise of Dr. West.

Although her death is a tragedy, it is somewhat nauseating to discover, under all those hidden rocks, the dregs that desperately need publicity after someone has the spotlight pointed in their respective direction.

Can you pull out a phone book in Beverly Hills, and find a doctor who doesn't have something filed against them? Kanya West is the most outspoken person that is in show business today. Don't you think if something was wrong, he would have said something by now. TMZ is a crock! You people through Oprah in this as she being the one who introduced these to, and she was not. Now, you are taking the angle about why he was on her show, or any show. Any doctor who is licensed to practice medicine can be a plastic surgeon. Don;t go after these folks, go after the board that certifies doctors. In the end, it is all about how much money TMZ can make. Stop trying to ruin peoples lives.

How many stories are you gonna post about this guy? Can you just group them all together so we can skip over them? I am tired of seeing this guy's face all over. I dont know if he's innocent or guilty, and dont really care, but I sure am sick of seeing the same old stories.
